Revue de presse :

"Amazing." --Bruce Sterling, Wired.com

"Looking back over the last 25 years you'd be hard pressed to name a music journalist more adept at tracking and defining the zeitgeist." --Dave Haslam, "The Guardian"

"Simon Reynolds, one of our most thoughtful music writers, poses a stark question for anyone who cares about the future of pop . . . A devastating critique of the way music is now consumed." --Patrick Sawer, "The Daily Telegraph"

"Bracingly sharp. As a work of contemporary historiography, a thick description of the transformations in our relationship to time--as well as to place--"Retromania" deserves to be very widely read." --Sukhdev Sandhu, "The Observer" (London)

"A provocative and original inquiry into the past and future of popular music." --"Booklist" (starred review)

"[A] mix of canny erudition, critical theory, stylish prose, and vibrant evocations." --Publishers Weekly

'For a long time, Simon Reynolds has been pretty much the most intelligent and thoughtful commentator on pop music around. Here, with rare brilliance, he investigates why, as a culture, pop is becoming obsessed with the past ... an excellent book, and not just about pop music.' --Evening Standard

Présentation de l'éditeur :

The first book to make sense of 21st Century pop, Retromania explores rock's nostalgia industry of revivals, reissues, reunions and remakes, and argues that there has never before been a culture so obsessed with its own immediate past. Pulling together parallel threads from music, fashion, art, and new media, Simon Reynolds confronts a central paradox of our era: from iPods to YouTube, we're empowered by mind-blowing technology, but too often it's used as a time machine or as a tool to shuffle and rearrange music from yesterday.We live in the digital future but we're mesmerized by our analogue past.

Description du livre Faber & Faber, 2011. État : New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "If I had to choose just one commentator to guide me through the last quarter-century of popular (and not so popular) music, it would have to beon the basis of knowledge, range of reference, soundness of judgment, and fluency of styleSimon Reynolds." GEOFF DYER, author of Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi "If pop music is all about right now, what happens when the past refuses to go quietly? The ever-brilliant Simon Reynolds investigates the cult of retro, the temptations of nostalgia, and the future of music cultureall with a detective's cold eye and a fan's hot heart." ROB SHEFFIELD, author of Love Is a Mix Tape "One of my favorite music writers wrestles one of my favorite musical paradoxes: What's up with the fetish for the Old in pop's Land of the Eternal New? Unpacking how YouTube makes history more lateral than linear, pondering the remarkable endurance of England's Northern Soul scene, or wondering if record collecting is indeed a distinctly masculine sickness, Reynolds's deep inquiries lead to a bigger question: Does obsessive engagement with the past make it harder to invent the future?" WILL HERMES, author of Love Goes to Buildings on Fire "The crowning achievement of Retromania is that it in no way contributes to the cultural malaise it critiques. You may struggle with the suspicion that you've seen it all before and heard it all beforebut you've never read anything that approaches the idea of retro from as many entertaining and incisive angles. The present may be collapsing into the past, but this is a book for the ages." GREG MILNER, author of Perfecting Sound Forever. N° de réf. du libraire ABE_book_new_0865479941

One of The Telegraph s Best Music Books 2011 We live in a pop age gone loco for retro and crazy for commemoration.
